    I am going to remove the chrome look trims at the bottom of my doors. Any advice/tips on the best method for removing the sticky gloooop? :D

    WD40, petrol (lighter fluid ideally) or warm soapy water.

    The petrol is usually my "go to" method.

    Nail varnish remover has many uses.

    The best I've come across is tar remover, works like a charm and doesn't stink, great on glass too.
